Don't Just Take Our Word for It, Here's What an ACD Member Has to Say: 

"ACD U is an excellent resource for our members. Many of us are small-medium companies with limited training staff and budgets. The top-notch courses included in ACD U provide us with access to well-designed training materials that can be completed as employees’ schedules allow, and at a fraction of the cost of less-targeted traditional training courses. Thank you, to everyone at ACD, for continuing to provide more value to the members.” - Tommy Turriff, President, TLC Ingredients, Inc.
